Skyrim’s vampire-themed Dawnguard DLC was originally announced as a 30-day Xbox 360 exclusive. Thirty days later it remains that way, and in that time we’ve heard no mention from Bethesda of when the DLC is expected to hit other systems.
As tweeted by Pete Hines, marketing VP over at Bethesda, “We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise I’d tell you.” He later followed this statement up by saying, “I was simply stating that expecting/demanding something today is unfounded. Not that news is never coming.”
Obviously Dawnguard will eventually surface on the PC and PS3. Those systems have substantial communities for the game (well, the PC does) and Bethesda would be crazy NOT to port the DLC to them. I’d be willing to bet it happens in the next week or two. Still, just another reminder of how annoying and pointless timed exclusives can be.
We’ve reached out to Bethesda for comment and will update this story with further information should we get any.
